5:23pm
him. >> i just have to take advantage of my opportunities. wear winning, and that's the great thing. that's outstanding, and hopefully we can continue to win. i believe we will. i'm just excited to be here. exciting to be part of this team, and just contribute in any way. >> mike: another reason, today the 49ers activated chad hall off the practice roster. that's unusual the night before the nfc title game for that to happen. so either jim harbaugh thinks michael crabtree might be distracted or today in practice one of the receivers, randy moss, or michael crabtree, might have sustained a hamstring and maybe a little injury. reporting live from the georgia dome, mike shumann, abc7 sports. >> talk to you again at 6:00. the story lines are certainly compelling in the afc title game. a rematch of last year.
